The family and friends of Leo Mullen are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against Toxoplasmosis. Please show your support!!

4 Year old Leo Mullen was born with a rare disease called Toxoplasmosis. Due to this disease he has severe brain damage, water on the brain, epilepsy, brain atrophy, he is blind, he functions on a 3 month old level and always will. July 4, 2012, Leo was hospitalized due to the rhinovirus. His lungs collapsed, and was put on a ventilator. After several weeks of this the doctors took us aside and told us we had two choices. We could take him home where he would be comfortable and let him pass away, or we could put in a trach and hope that it helps him. We decided to put in a trach. The trach was put in and he is doing better after spending 3months in the hospital. We are currently having difficulty getting him to his medical appointments since he can not walk, talk, or support himself and he is getting too big to be in a car seat. He has a wheelchair, however we are looking to you for help in getting Leo a handicap accessible wheelchair van. He really needs this to sustain his life. The hospital that manages his care is 4 hours from where we live and he goes there frequently, for all of this health issues. Please find it in your hearts to help this sweet innocent little boy who has fought for his life for the last 4 years of his life!! Every time a doctor said he wasn't going to make it, Leo has fought to be here. Doctors call him "miracle baby". Please help us make his life easier, and help us sustain his life for as long as possible. Thank you for your time and consideration.
